Muncy locals Oct. 19, 2016

By Staff | Oct 19, 2016

I think it is important to recognize students as much as we can. Often so many of them go unnoticed. This week I would like to give a mention of acknowledgement to the following Muncy students:

Tyler Houseknecht who received a Penn College NOW scholarship for plastics and polymer engineering technology.

Brooke Gray who raised 15,000 dollars for the Salvation Army. She has spent her fall semester organizing fundraisers to support the local organization. Recently she has been busy planning for the upcoming Community Challenge 5K run and walk on Nov. 12 to be held at Williamsport High School’s cross country course.

Julie Diane Smith who represented Muncy High School at the Flaming Foliage Festival in Renovo this past weekend. Her escort was Austin Kessler of Muncy.

‘Stop Muncy Burn’ a group protesting the proposed waste to energy plant at the former Andritz building on Sherman Street will be meeting tonight at the Vineyard Community center, also on

Sherman Street to develop further plans and to find out more why Delta Thermo wants to come here.

The Muncy Garden Club will be hosting their annual tea tomorrow night at the parish hall of St. James Episcopal Church. Members and guests are to bring a treat to share and a tea cup. It will also be scrapbook viewing night. Devotions will be from Sue Seybert and refreshments provided by Sue Seybert and Paula Schwenk.

I have discovered that technology can be a good thing. Once you start ordering online, your email address is required and before you know it, you are bombarded with solicitations. A good way to get rid of all that clutter is to go to http://unroll me. This free service will let you easily manage those daily emails and do a mass ‘unsubscribe’ at once.

Do you want to learn more about technology and the newest updates? Just go to www.susquehannaSeniorTek.org and you can register for a computer course or learn how to use an iPad, download apps plus lots more.
